Series Sunday: Bed & Breakfast Bedlam

(Logan Dickerson Cozy Mystery #1)

Series Sunday is a bookish meme hosted by Literary Marie of Precision Reviews. I encourage all of my fellow book bloggers and bookhearts to play along.
  • Read an installment of a series.
  • Share your review/recommendation below.
  • Include the title, author and series name.

My Series Sunday pick is Bed & Breakfast Bedlam, the first book in the Logan Dickerson Cozy Mystery series by Abby L. Vandiver. Logan Dickerson is a nearly 30-year-old black archaeologist trying to prove her worth outside of her mother's shadow. Logan's mom, Dr. Justin Dickerson, is a biblical archaeologist that discovered the Mars Origin Theory. (Click here for my review of Dr. Dickerson's story In The Beginning.)

"Archaeologists, like me, mark time around such events." ~ iBook pg. 5

After trespassing on a federally protected archaeological site, Logan ends up in a small Georgia town where one resident has keeled over dead in her bowl of Renmar's famous bouillabaisse. Suddenly the place where Logan wants a good meal and sleep becomes the scene of a crime. Maypop Bed & Breakfast is full of characters: an attractive FBI guy, a voodoo herbalist, a clueless sheriff, whispering old folks and more. Of all the colorful characters, Logan is recruited by the ninety-something, voodoo herbalist named Miss Vivee who tries to solve the murder before the local sheriff does.

"My idea of fun is not hunting down killers. I like digging in dirt." ~ iBook pg. 455

The death of a complete stranger marks the complete and utter change in the course of Logan's young life. This cozy mystery with a touch of romance was everything! A very quick engaging read indeed. It is worth reading if you like diversity on your bookshelf and a cozy mystery. I am really looking forward to reading the other books in the series. Thank goodness the author, Abby L. Vandiver, released the other books back-to-back. I am diving into the next one like Logan digs into dirt!
